by Renvyle Blake

Book Image Not Available
Overview
From the high peaks of the Nepal Himalayas Western signals intelligence equipment spies deep into Tibet, probing the Chinese ballistic missile testing program and monitoring its rapid military build-up. Now key equipment has been destroyed and there seems to be a Swiss financial connection. A fully deniable 'black operation' is launched, and the British deploy their ace in the hole - an MI6-controlled hedge fund called Pelagic Holdings. Fred Morton-Harvey and Anthony Barrington are tasked to investigate. On the surface they are respectable financiers, in reality both are skilled intelligence operatives. Fred Morton-Harvey is just back from a mission in Hong Kong that went wrong; could there be a connection? One man becomes the unknowing bait in a Chinese plan to strike a devastating and totally unexpected blow against Western vital interests. That same man is the only person who can stop it. Death stalks him wherever he goes, in the form of a renegade psychopath from Serbian intelligence. From a surprise encounter in the boardroom of a Geneva private bank to a desperate shoot out on the vertiginous ice walls of a Himalayan peak, unfolds a story of love, courage and betrayal, against seemingly impossible odds.
